Suffolk student-athletes play smart, excelling not only in competition, but also in the classroom.
The Great Northeast Athletic Conference names 54 Suffolk University student-athletes to the 2015-16 Academic All-GNAC Team—the second highest all-time number for the blue-and-gold.
The honor goes to student-athletes who are sophomores and above, have maintained a cumulative grade-point average of 3.25 or more during the 2015-16 academic year, and have completed in at least one full season of a GNAC sponsored sport. See the full list of Suffolk honorees (PDF).
In March, the ECAC Northeast Hockey League honored its 2015-16 All-Academic Team, with 13 Suffolk players earning the distinction.
Over the course of the year, more than 200 Suffolk student-athletes across 13 varsity sports combined for a 3.22 department GPA; 16 achieved perfect 4.0s in both the fall or spring semester; and five Rams reached the milestone in the both semesters.
